How important is this? Well, I have decided to share with you this important information as most importantly the level 400s in the various Colleges of Education are embarking on their out programme (Macro Teaching).
As part of the Macro Teaching, these students will have to do a project work which demands a thorough research. We should also not forget that, this Project Work is part of the courses one is going to be graded. How then will one have an effective research?
Let’s go through these processes;
STEP 1: IDENTIFICATION OF TASK
This is where the researcher will identify the problem or task you are going to research on. As part of this, the researcher may ask some questions we needs answers. Some of these questions are;
a. Define the problem
b. Identify the information needed to complete the task. This information should actually help provide answers to the problem or task identified.
STEP 2: SEEKING FOR INFORMATION STRATEGIES
Where are you getting your information from? At this step, the researcher should get reliable resources he or she will get his or her information from. What you should do is to;
a. figure out the possible sources to get your information (you can brainstorm for that)
b. evaluate and choose the best source from the different possible sources.
STEP 3: LOCATION AND ASSESS
In this step, the researcher or student should find and assess the information in step 2. You should;
a. locate sources (intellectually and physically)
b. find information within sources.
STEP 4: USING OF INFORMATION
After finding your information, the next step is to use it. You are to decide which information applies to the problem and is most useful.
a. in finding for the information, you should ENGAGE your sources of information bif possible, read, hear, view, and touch.
b. get the relevant information from the sources.
STEP 5: SYNTHESIS
After all the relevant information gathered, students should therefore organize the information from multiple sources and presents it nicely.
STEP 7: EVALUATION
You should have a criical analysis of how effective the research is it will be. Where you able to accomplish the task and answer the problem identified in STEP 1?
Again, the effectiveness and efficiency of the reseach should be judge.
Note that, we are also going to publish list of project work topics and samples of them which we believe will be of benefit to you. Therefore, there is the need to join all our social media platforms for every update of them.
